I´ve voted for CPss Mary. She was wearing a tiara that her husband inherited from his swedish-born maternal grandmother. That´s a sweet touch

BTW. I really really really loved and adored CPss Victoria´s "arrow of cupid" in her hair to the concert the day before the wedding

Thank you Rascal and Tilia C. for the help. Here are some more pictures:
Countess Sandra Bernadotte

Countess Marianne Bernadotte

Mrs. Madeleine Kogevinas

Countess Gunilla Bernadotte

And now for the "unknowns" who I'm sure one of you will identify:
Photo 1
Photo 2
Photo 3
Photo 4
Photo 5

I have to mention these last two ladies separately because at first I thought they were one and the same, which they obviously aren't. They seem to be wearing the same dress though.

The last two ladies would be ladies in waiting I suppose. That is the official dress of ladies-in-waiting I think. Lovely photos Humera, you guys have gone the extra mile. I love seeing new jewelry and hair of course.

Thank you for all the great work getting these shots, Humera. I have identified almost all of them in your quote below:

And now for the "unknowns" who I'm sure one of you will identify:
Photo 1 One of Silvia's ladies-in-waiting although I don't think she is a "regular" part of the rotation now. I don't know her last name but I think her first name is Elizabeth or Elisabeth. She escorted Silvia's brothers and sister-in-law during the procession to the church.
Photo 2 Andrea Brodin Engsall, one of Victoria's best friends since at least high school. Victoria is godmother to her daughter.
Photo 3 Louise Lyberg - one of Silvia's ladies-in-waiting. I'm not sure if she is one of the regular ones now but I know that she was assigned to assist the Dutch royals during the wedding fetivities. She "escorted" or walked behind WA & Maxima in the procession to the church.
Photo 4 Unknown to me, but it looks like she is wearing the same order/bow with initials that the ladies of the court all are wearing. Anyone?
Photo 5 Anna Maria Corrazza Bildt, wife of Carl Bildt, foreign minister and former Prime Minister of Sweden.

I have to mention these last two ladies separately because at first I thought they were one and the same, which they obviously aren't. They seem to be wearing the same dress though.
Photo 6 Christina Schwerin, one of Silvia's ladies-in-waiting. She assisted CP Mary during the wedding week.
Photo 7 Kirstin von Blixen-Finecke (not sure of the spelling) - one of Silvia's ladies-in-waiting - I think she is actually now Silvia's private secretary.
I hope that helps with the identifications. Sorry I couldn't get them all.

Thank you Humera for this wonderful tiara/hairstyle poll. I hadn't been able to view all of the ladies' hairstyles during the event so I appreciated the back views.

I voted for Mette Marit, but close behind were Letizia, Sophie of Lichtenstein, and Maxima.

Wow, thank you so much for sharing the additional tiara pictures. It's a miracle to me how you found them. Good on you!
And thank you, Rascal, for identifying these ladies!
Some of the tiaras are really nice, although none of these ladies can rival the royal ladies in our pol. I especially like the tiara of Christina Schwerin.

There is actually another lady in waiting I am trying to find a pic or screen cap for, Louise Torneman. During the pre-wedding concert she arrived with the Princes of Asturias, so I assume she was assigned to them, although I did not see any clear pictures of her on the wedding day. If I find one I will post and/or maybe Humera could get a more clear one.

Louise Torneman has at least two tiaras I have seen. One is small, possibly set in gold and appears to have pearls or maybe very small diamonds - it almost looks like a fringed bandeau. The other is a little larger and includes what appear to be either opals or very light turquoise stones, that is why I am interested in seeing which one she wore.

I found a pic of Kirsten von Blixen-Finecke with Louise Torneman on IBL. In this pic, Torneman (on the right) is wearing the tiara that I believe she wore to the wedding, although this photo is not from the wedding itself. It is the one I believe is opals or very light turquoise.

In addition, there was a woman who walked in with Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister and her husband. She was wearing a tiara, but I don't know who she is....anyone recognize her?

there were a couple of pics of this lady but she's in the background in all of them and very blurry so you can't really make out her tiara.

CP Mette Marit got my vote but IMO she tied with Queen Silvia with CP Mary right behind them...

And thanks for the photos of lesser know attendess wearing the finery, love it.

I can't choose between Letizia and MetteMarit...

If Letizia had her plaits little bit higher above her forehead and better tiara...
Mette Marit really romantic but I still feel that something is missing.

My vote goes to Mette-Marit who, IMO, looked romantic, young and yet royal. Most of the hairdos have been rather too modern (Letizia - though I liked the braids somehow) or too old-fashioned/kitschy (for CP Mary for example I would have wished something more young) for my taste.

I also like Infanta Cristina's hairdo, Mathilde's (very elegant & regal) and surprisingly Sophie's very simple hairdo-tiara-combination.

May I ask a question? I've seen many ladies in the Swedish court wearing the same dress. Is it the uniform for LIW there?

Yes, mellie. The dark blue gown with the criss-cross puffy sleeves is the official "uniform" of the ladies-in-waiting in Sweden. But they don't seem to wear them consistently. Alice Troll-Wachtmeister used to wear one. The woman whose name I don't know (the one in the green dress) I can only assume is - or was - a lady-in-waiting. The woman in the first pic - whose first name is Elisabeth - definitely was a lady-in-waiting. But none of them wore the uniform. There were four women in that uniform at the wedding that I know of:
Kirstine von Blixen-Finecke
Christina Schwerin
Louise Torneman
Charlotte Palmstierna (who I believe is the newest one).

Maybe the others are "retired" and helping out with this event as it was a bit more involved and larger than a state visit.

Thanks Rascal for the answer. I found it is a bit weird this uniform.
It is not ugly this dress but why do they need a uniform?

Mette-Merit really does look stunning in a tiara.

Some of the older ladies looked very nice, although their hair seemed out of date.

Princess Mathilde's hair was lovely, such a regal style (must have taken quite a bit of work). Her colorist does a great job, as well, but the tiara got lost.

While looking at some footage from the wedding reception, I noticed this woman with Svante Lindqvist, the new Marshal of the Realm (since January 2010). After searching him, I was able to identify her as his wife, Catharina Lindqvist. I have no HQ photos of her tiara but it is definitely yellow gold with possibly small diamonds across the top.

Now I won't have that nagging feeling everytime I see a pic of her!

If you are referring to the woman with the glasses who was walking with Queen Silvia's siblings, she is Elisabeth Olsson, apprarently a LIW to Silvia from some years ago.

The other elderly woman walking the woman I identified as Catharina Lindqvist is Alice Trolle-Wachtmeister, Mistress of the Robes for Silvia.
